Austin Texas Tower Shooting – 1966 and Now.


Poem in memory of the shooting

Austin City Limits

Nightlights along the river

Heat rises from the pavement

Strumming guitars

Beats over microphones

Tower in the background

Try not to remember

Bullets raining down

The summer of ‘66

Just missed me

Didn’t miss another

Mother to be

Steel penetrated belly

Taking that life yet unborn

Try to forget

Austin City Limits.

Deeper Colors is about an artist (2 artists actually) Fictional characters. But here is the real thing.


Deeper Colors is about an artist (2 artists actually)  Fictional characters.  But here is the real thing.  In my book, Gina is seeking how to capture the light she sees in an 18th century artist’s paintings she ran across one day in Paris.  She finally discovers secrets (both artistic and personal) and deepens the colors not only of her paintings but in herself too.

This artist is my artist.  So many of her paintings are what I envisioned for scenes in the book. She even has a cat.  It’s almost uncanny.  Go look and enjoy.

A friend bought the (original) painting a few years ago for an anniversary/valentine gift because this was where he and his wife married.  Was a nice thought and I was glad that I had created something that was meaningful to someone else.
